About this creation
The Lambda shuttle, designed by Seinar Fleet Systems, is used by most high ranking Imperial officals. It has a unique tri-wing design where the two lower airfoils rotate upwards as the shuttle lands.

   The cockpit seats a pilot and copilot/comm officer quite nicely.

   I'm pretty happy with the overall shape of this ship except for the upper 'wing'. The angle of the leading edge is a bit low and the front to back depth is a bit long because of the limitations of the LEGO slope angles. I thought I could be a bit more accurate with it but wasn't as happy with the look the S.N.O.T. construction I'd come up with.

   The entire top portion comes off to access the interior. I could not find any official info regarding what the interior looked like so I elected to go with a modular* interior.

*empty;-)

   I love the flesh coloured minifigs. The Emperor was created by scratching a Harry Potter' glasses partially, leaving 'bags' under Palpatine's eyes.

   I double hinged the ramp so that it wouldn't be too steep.

   The seed part for this entire project was the 1x2x6 arch you see all along the sides. I just really liked the dimentions and curvyness of it. To me, it's the perfect part for this. The landing gear are not retractable, there just isn't room for them in there. Now if LEGO made some nice sturdy telescoping pieces.....

Probably the best one i've ever seen, only thing that would make it better is if it was a see through window, instead of a black one, but i still give it 5/5

The zenith of lego empire ships(except for the engines. Make them transparent blue or something).

Wow! This is, by far, the best Imperial Shuttle I've ever seen! The cocpit, wings, ramp, everything- is so accurately detailed! Keep up the great work!

The cockpit is ace, inside and out. The black window is a brave move, but it works so well.

This is an amazing ship. I really like the black window in front and the two seats for the minifigs. Youve got the minifigs from that "death star inspection" set. Ive got only 1 problem with those plae figures... Over the years, we've collected yellow starwars minifigs... But how are we supposed to combine figs that are only made in yellow with pale figs?!?!

You make amazing stuff. The scale is just great. You know, I liked the flesh colored minifigs, but it takes time to get used to them ;) Cheers - Victor

Im not a big fan of the flesh minifigs(they just dont look right...). But the shuttle is great. I love that you put the ramp there, but it looks like the minifigs would have a hard time "using" it :p.

WWWWWAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY better than the official set. i like that you put the ramp underneath the cockpit, not in the back. Thats how it really supposed to be ..but im sure you know that.
